Overview

“This is as important a book on this subject as I recall ever having read.”
— Huston Smith

“Brilliant.... Schroeder’s book demands the attention of anyone who wonders if God must be exiled from the modern, enlightened mind.”
— David J. Wolpe, author of Why Faith Matters

In his first book since 2002’s acclaimed The Hidden Face of God, popular scientist Gerald Schroeder combines decades of scientific research and biblical study to present a groundbreaking new paradigm of how to understand God. Readers of Jack Miles’ God: A Biography, Francis Collins’s The Language of God, and Richard Friedman’s Who Wrote the Bible will find much to contemplate in God According to God.

Editorial Reviews

Our problem with God, according to physicist Gerald L, Schroeder, is that we're trying to force him to stand still. According to this MIT-trained scientist, the ruling deity of the cosmos is a living, changing God. Dr. Schroeder uses biblical interpretation and scientific analysis to argue that, like us, God assimilates new information, experiences regret, and wants us to argue with him and gradually become his partner in creation. Schroeder's unique view represents a radical paradigm shift in the ongoing debates between science and religion.
